Feature Medical provides a comprehensive range of medical services to support your feature production. Our team of qualified and experienced medics have additional skillsets to provide your film unit with an unprecedented level of service. By doing more at the point of care, we reduce the need for people to leave site and visit alternative medical facilities.
At unit level we have advanced diagnostic procedures such as the ability to take a blood sample which is analysed by our lab. We can then diagnose and start treatment if applicable including provision of prescription medications.
We can see, examine, diagnose and treat most things people would normally need time to see their GP about, without the need to leave the set/location. Almost anything people would visit their GP for we can cover including routine appointments for medication administration such as vitamin B12 or contraception injections etc which are time dependent.
In terms of pre-hospital care some of our medics can close wounds and administer a tetanus vaccine to save an afternoon sat in minor injuries.
All medics have emergency medical and trauma qualifications.
For particularly high risk activities we can provide highly specialised trauma medics.
As a single service provider, we believe in continuity of staff covering your production. We use the same person in that position for the duration of the production. So whether it be main unit, the stunt performers or workshops/construction, they have continuity from the person providing their care.
We communicate as a team ensuring cross unit continuity, such as for cast and crew moving between first and second units.
Our medics get to know the people they look after. Continuity of care in managing medical conditions, or follow-up care provided, is extremely important to us.
Feature Medical offers additional services such as travel immunisations, a flu vaccination program or repeat prescriptions. This includes cast and crew from outside the UK.
All services and our governance are overseen by our in-house GMC registered Medical Consultant.
